Select and Neglect

I've decided on this new year's motto...........

Select what you're going to neglect,
so you don't neglect what you select.

Simplify, Simplify, Simplify!

There's way too much useless, floofy, extra, busybody, overboard, totally unnecessary, distracting, time-sucking, needless stuff that needs to be cut out!

Like, say NO to Playdough. Who needs it?

Then, maybe I will find the time to do more important things (like more blogging, bike riding & more chocolate chip cookie dough eating).

So, here's a list of some things I'm cutting out of my life..........

Chuck E. Cheese's

Mountainside Gym

my kids - part of the time

.........although this kind of stuff happens.
A little neglect never hurt anybody, in fact, I believe it just helps my kids be more independent & resourceful. I mean, this 2-year-old can make himself his own bowl of CocoPuffs in the morning! They have to learn how to do stuff on their own. It's a good thing!

American Idol

changing sheets after every a 5-year-old really gives a rip, and you save water.

big, clever, cutesy birthday parties .......(SO done with those!)

anything organic

pushing my kids on the swings........learn to pump already!!

my entire upstairs

pet care

fashion........too old. not enough money. who cares. who am I trying to impress anyway...

making breakfast


The key is to neglect as much stuff as you can, so there's not much left to select. See how that works?

I'm feeling good about 2009 already!

NOOOOOOOOO! You can't cut out the gym....everything else, fine, the gym, no. Geesh, after all that, what do you have left? Oh yeah, blogging and cookie dough eating. Right on. And you left out scouts. Who needs that?
